The Constitutional Monarchy of Duke is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ronald McDonald with an iron fist, and notable for its ban on automobiles, strictly enforced bedtime, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 8.461 billion Civvieses are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ur. The average income tax rate is 41.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Dukean economy, worth 390 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 46,185 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, cane fights are a common sight in nursing homes, Duke isn't what it used to be, and wildlife have trouble navigating the electric fences surrounding national forests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Duke's national animal is the Rampart Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Violetism.

Duke is ranked 33,340th in the world and 27th in Scandinavia for Best Weather, with 123 Meters Of Sunlight.
